raylcdf

Rayleigh cumulative distribution function

Syntax

p = raylcdf(x,b)
p = raylcdf(x,b,'upper')

Description

p = raylcdf(x,b) returns the Rayleigh cdf at each value in x using the corresponding scale parameter, b. x and b can be vectors, matrices, or multidimensional arrays that all have the same size. A scalar input for x or b is expanded to a constant array with the same dimensions as the other input.

p = raylcdf(x,b,'upper') returns the complement of the Rayleigh cdf at each value in x, using an algorithm that more accurately computes the extreme upper tail probabilities.

The Rayleigh cdf is

y=F(x|b)=0xtb2e(t22b2)dt

Examples

collapse all

Compute the cdf of a Rayleigh distribution with parameter B = 1.

x = 0:0.1:3;
p = raylcdf(x,1);

Plot the cdf.
